The low-carbon propulsion system will be utilised within a danish ferry service between the Danish islands of Læsø and Frederikshavn and hydrogen provides a basis to achieve this.

The partners will work together to identify ideal alternative fuels to replace the ferry’s current diesel powerplant and determine whether the Læsø ferry service will be able to operate effectively on a daily basis, using only green fuels. One of the proposals to be examined will be the combination of methanol driven engines and fuel cells.

The objective will be to identify a panacea for decarbonising many of the 53 ferry routes currently operating in Danish waters.

Morten Sørensen, Senior Vice-President of Advent Technologies, said, “We are happy to be joining forces with trusted partners across several industries, having a shared goal to create a safe and sustainable solution for Denmark’s ferries, replacing their current propulsion systems which operate on traditional technologies and diesel fuels.

“As a project partner, Advent will play a key role in enabling significant reductions in emissions of climate-changing gases and air pollutants.”
